will convince communities to cooperate with the police, president obama is hoping her death will bring nationwide reform to gun control. this too in regard to her death. the problem is that a huge proportion of those guns come in from outside chicago. if you are just creating a bunch of pockets of gun laws without having unified systems, for example, background checks, it will be a lot harder for an individual community to protect itself from this kind of gun violence. that is precisely why we think it's important for congress to act. that was the president in that interview with univision. guns and gun control in the spotlight across the country. is there a solution? join anderson cooper in his debate in guns under fire. ac 3 strict special airs tonight. set the dvr. watch it live at 8:00 eastern right here on cnn. >>> and a 5-year-old boy is now in his third day being held hostage by a stranger who snatched him from a school bus and dragged him in his homemade bunker in alabama. we are hearing reports about the man who is holding the child. neighbors identify him as jimmy lee dikes.

and obama floated chain cpi before the new year and two summers ago to raise the medicare eligibility age. would you be more comfortable with that broad framework, half revenue, half entitlement reform or just go with the sequester? which would you prefer? >> i would frankly prefer we did not pass $4 trillion in tax cuts. maybe 2.8 trillion in tax cuts and wouldn't have to cut anything -- >> right, right. but this is where we are right now. this is the choice to make, right? >> this is the problem. we are doing a sequential budget. we tugt do it all at once. cut taxes, how do you pay for them? if you don't pay for them that way, you don't get the tax cuts and doing things sequentially and ending up as your question suggests cutting social security and medicare to preserve tax cuts. i don't think if people knew that's what was going to happen, i think most people wouldn't have wanted the tax cuts to begin with. most people don't remember them from ten years ago and to preserve tax cuts they don't remember getting, they wouldn't want to cut social security and medicare. and you talked about
mccain, schumer, rubio, and others, which moves us towards comprehensive immigration reform, embraces of this vital core principle. i also welcome president obama's contributions to this discussion and look forward to hearing what he has to say today in las vegas. it carries a bipartisan agreement that it is -- to make room for foreign-born american educated experts who want to apply their skills, start businesses and raise their families are. at the same time went to dramatically improve s.t.e.m. education available to american citizens to fill this dramatic gap in these fields. as senator hatch said just a few minutes ago, if you take the example of computer science, by 2020 the u.s. economy will need 120,000 men and women to fill these jobs, yet just 40,000 graduates with degrees in computer science will be americans. how to fill that gap so the bipartisan legislation we introduced today tackles old site of this problem by reforming our outdated immigration system to allow highly skilled engineers and researchers to stay here rather than leaving and taking their jobs and future opp
support. it appears congress is going to pass significant immigration reform and that reform looks like it will fall much of what president obama wants. if that goes through, that is perfectly constitutional. you get the government you vote for, that you deserve and this is the government you have. if you oppose the republicans in the senate for reaching this agreement, your recourse is to replace those members. host: going back to your comments about the president paused use of drones and how he fights the war on terror -- guest: every president has said he is facing problems that his predecessors did not have to face and that is why he is asking for more power. three people have to be highly skeptical of that. drones an important technology. they are not so vastly different nor is the war on terror so vastly different as to excuse the creation of an imperial presidency. this president, at least his administration, has said they will reserve the right to do drone strikes in countries that are posed to them. the american people dismiss the concerns are countries that raise his objection
with that strategy or you think there is something to it? >> i don't think we've seen any indication president obama plans on not governing for the first two years of the administration. i think the ideas we saw come out, talk about gun violence prevention, comprehensive immigration reform, climate control, these are things that the american people want. we've been talking about for the last --. bill: but you don't even know if that can pass through even the democratic senate. >> right. >> no, sure but these are the issues we need to be talking about and we ned everyone at the table. these ideas have traditionally come, we found compromises from both parties and we do need to be able to come back to those again. it is unfortunate the last congress speaker boehner had his hands tied by very extreme parties of his party. i had real hopes that speaker boehner would be able to come back to the table and i actually still think he would be able to. bill: three days in, here we are, we are 72 hours warm. got to run, monica, quick last word. >> i could see why the left think ideas of limited government, fis
